TORONTO, Jan. 18th, 2018 – Inspired by high-performance professional kitchens, the BLANCO SOLENTATM semi-pro kitchen faucet collection offers maximum performance, usability and control with the BLANCO SOLENTATM, and BLANCO SOLENTATM Senso. The SOLENTATM Senso is a new sensor faucet that delivers the ultimate hands-free experience with a reliable and sophisticated start-stop user interface. The SOLENTATM Senso provides instant, effortless water control with a conveniently placed sensor located directly underneath the magnetic docking arm. The location of the sensor ensures that the user always has easy access, regardless of what direction the faucet is turned. The sensor also features a close range detection field of 2 ½” which prevents unintended activations.
The SOLENTATM Senso is the perfect balance of precise touchless sensor control combined with standard manual functions. Water strength and temperature settings can be manually adjusted using the ergonomic control lever while the sensor activated start-stop function turns the water on and off. Once the water is turned on, the SOLENTATM Senso will automatically turn the water off after 90 seconds. This offers conscious water consumption and prevents the risk of overflow – even if the sensor is activated accidentally, the water will still automatically turn off. A reduced flow rate of 1.5 gpm also offers water savings without compromising the strength of the water stream. The SOLENTATM Senso includes a battery operated adapter as a standard faucet component. One 6V battery is included with the faucet, while an A/C adapter for hard-wire installation can be ordered separately as an additional accessory.
Faucets have to cope with a lot of wear and tear in the kitchen. The SOLENTATM collection offers 360° swivel, an insulated handspray, and a flexible spring for extended reach with a hose encased with easy to clean, durable stainless steel.
”The introduction of an electronic faucet is an exciting new addition to our growing semi-pro faucet portfolio,” says BLANCO Canada’s Director of Marketing, Edyta Drutis. “The unique placement of the sensor provides a very different level of convenience from what is currently available on the market. With the launch of this product, we will also be releasing a brand new series of captivating video content.”
The SOLENTATM collection will be offered in Chrome and Stainless Finish (PVD), and will come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Product availability is scheduled for April 2018.
